Discover the Stanley Clark Difference
Welcome from the Director of Enrollment
Thank you for your interest in The Stanley Clark School! We are a fully accredited independent, co-educational day school serving students age three through grade 8. The curriculum is centered on four pillars: academics, athletics, the arts and character.
We value a growth mindset and promote resilience as Stanley Clark students pursue passions and discover innovative solutions. A breadth and depth of knowledge serve students well as they learn how to take calculated risks and problem solve. Most notably, our students demonstrate empathy and awareness through leadership and service.
Students at all grade levels enjoy small class sizes and benefit from the support of faculty specialized in their subject areas. Beginning in our early childhood Reggio Emilia classrooms, teachers foster curiosity through a comfortable child-centered environment and by adapting the curriculum to match the interests of their students. A deep appreciation and engagement in the arts continue through foreign language, music, performing arts and the sciences. Students adeptly work well individually and on a team, exhibit good sportsmanship, and embody poise and confidence.
I welcome the opportunity to speak with you more specifically about how The Stanley Clark School may be a good fit for your family. If you have any questions, please complete an inquiry form or call me at your convenience.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to The Stanley Clark School!
